  • Description


    We are an easy going family consisting of mum, dad and our 13 year old son. Nathalie is a teacher and Kerry is an accountant, both working mainly from home. We are a busy household, our son is homeschooled and we are often working on different projects as well as travelling around.
    We are used to having someone in our home as we have had au pairs and volunteers staying with us for the last few years. We can provide references.

    We are looking for someone from mid April onwards and prefer someone who can stay for at least 4 weeks, however we can be flexible. We will be in Australia (Gold Coast and Brisbane) for 3 months during June, July and August and would love to host someone there as well.

    Katikati is a friendly small town in the Bay of Plenty, 15 minute drive from Waihi Beach, 30 min to Tauranga (bus or car). We are on the main bus route from Auckland to Tauranga. There is a bicycle for you to use to explore the area if you haven't got a car.

    We would love to host someone who has experience or an interest in working with teenagers with special needs. Our son has developmental delay, he loves meeting new people, is easy to get along with and friendly. He loves going on outings and we have a car available which a helper can use to take him on trips to the beach, local park, swimming pool, cinema, etc.
    And if you also like gardening and mowing lawns that would be a bonus!
